Denumerable Markov chains by
John G Kemeny(
Book
)
51 editions published between 1966 and 1976 in 4 languages and held by 1,075 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This textbook provides a systematic treatment of denumerable Markov chains, covering both the foundations of the subject and some in topics in potential theory and boundary theory. It is a discussion of relations among what might be called the descriptive quantities associated with Markov chainsprobabilities of events and means of random variables that give insight into the behavior of the chains. The approach, by means of infinite matrices, simplifies the notation, shortens statements and proofs of theorems, and often suggests new results. This second edition includes the new chapter, Introduction to Random Fields, written by David Griffeath

Oral history interview with John Kemeny by
John G Kemeny(
)
in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Kemeny entered Princeton as an undergraduate in February 1943. He describes undergraduate mathematics courses, and he talks about Fine Hall, fellow students(including Stan Ulam), and about contacts between the University's mathematics dept. and the School of Mathematics of the Institute for Advanced Study. Kemeny talks about John von Neumann and, at some length, about Kurt Gödel, and Tucker talks about Alan Turing. Kemeny tells how he became interested in computing
